Koresh Youth Ensemble – Posted by Koresh Dance Company Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States

Job Description

The Koresh Youth Ensemble was formed in the fall of 2008 to give gifted, young dancers more intensive dance training and greater performance opportunities. Students who demonstrate both the talent and desire to become professionals are selected to join the group. The ensemble allows young dancers the chance to show their commitment to dance and strive for excellence in performance, under the direction of Melissa Rector, assistant artistic director of Koresh Dance Company.

Students must be 13-18 years old in order to be eligible. There is a strong emphasis on training as members are required to take a minimum of five classes a week in the children’s program at the Koresh School of Dance. Classes include ballet, ballet technique, pointe, modern, and jazz. In addition, they have rehearsal every Sunday. There is a fee for being a member of the ensemble. Please note that specific class requirements may change year to year.

For the audition, dancers are given a modern jazz warm up and learn combinations from Artistic Director Melissa Rector and Koresh School of Dance instructors.

Auditions for the 2017-2018 Koresh Youth Ensemble will be held on Sunday, July 30, 2017.  Preregistration is mandatory.
